Tipped To Be An Eventful Encounter

, , , , , | Right | April 18, 2020

I am the supervisor on shift at a coffee shop in a busy but “shady” area of town. It is almost midnight and I watch a woman pick up an old cup of coffee off a patio table, walk up to the front counter, and approach my employee.

Lady: “This coffee you sold me is cold. Give me a new one.”

Employee: “I just saw you pick that up off the patio. You didn’t buy that.”

Lady: “F*** you! I paid for this. Get me new coffee now.”

Employee: “No, I’m not doing that. Please leave.”

Me: “I’m the supervisor, and I want you out of the store now.”

The lady swears at us. Then, she takes the cup of cold coffee and throws it right in my employee’s face. My employee doesn’t flinch.

Me: “Okay, get out now or I’m calling the cops.”

Lady: “F*** you! Look at what you did! There’s coffee all over my clothes! I want a free coffee, and you’re paying for my dry-cleaning, too, b****!”

She grabs the pretty full tip jar off the counter, claiming that will pay for her dry-cleaning, and leaves the store. She crosses the street and just hangs out on the opposite corner, while I flag a local cop and tell him what happened. He goes across the street, grabs her, and brings her back.

Cop: “Is this the lady who stole your tips?”

Lady: “I didn’t steal nothing! These people tried to rip me off! They ruined my clothes!”

Cop: “Empty your purse.”

After fighting for a few minutes, she dumped out her purse and change went all over the floor. The cop told us to take everything. The lady was screaming that some of it was HER money. The cop let us take it, and then put her under arrest when FIVE crack pipes came tumbling out with the change!
